Rezidor announces the Park Inn Voronezh, Russia

The  Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the  fastest growing hotel groups worldwide and
the  leading  international  hotel  operator  in  Russia, announces the Park Inn
Voronezh.  The property  featuring 164 rooms  is scheduled  to open its doors in
2013. "With  this signing, we have reached the impressive number of 15,000 rooms
in  operation and under development in Russia/CIS  and the Baltics, and are able
to  strengthen  our  pole  position",  comments  Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of
Rezidor.  "I'm also delighted to see our young and dynamic mid-market brand Park
Inn growing further. The brand's pipeline now comprises 93 hotels with more than
17,200 rooms  in operation -  and further 51 hotels  with a total of 9,000 rooms
under development", continues Ritter.

Besides   164 modern   guest   rooms,  the  Park  Inn  Voronezh  will  offer  an
all-day-dining  restaurant, a  lobby lounge,  a fitness  room, meeting rooms and
private parking. The location of the building is ideal - within the city centre,
and  near the sports stadium and the main train station. The hotel forms part of
the  strategic  development  agreement  between  Rezidor  and  the  Russia-based
Regional  Hotel  Chain  LLC  (RHC).  The  agreement comprises 20 future Park Inn
properties  spread across major  cities in Russia.  The firm list of development
includes  10 confirmed locations,  and another  10 sites have  been earmarked as
potential future locations.

Voronezh  is  a  large  city  in  south-western  Russia, 450 kilometres south of
Moscow,  towards the border of Ukraine. The centre is a mix of old and new, with
elaborate 18(th)-century buildings adjacent to modern complexes. Top attractions
include  Princess Oldenburgskaya  Castle, the  Opera &  Ballet Theatre, the Veta
Exhibition  Centre, Ksenya Peterburgskaya Church and the Olympic sports complex.
The  city's strong economic situation is due to its robust industrial base and a
well-developed  transportation system. It is located  at the confluence of major
road  and railway lines connecting central Russia with the Northern Caucasus and
Ukraine.  Besides its strong  industrial base, Voronezh  is a cultural hub, with
cinemas, theatres, ballet, and a flourishing music scene. It is also the home to
Voronezh  State University  with over  20,000 students, which  is a particularly
popular destination for language students.
